If you consider yourself to be quite the fashionista then there is nothing better than wearing the latest designs and styles every hour of the day, each day of the week, every week of the year! If this perfectly describes you, however, you also know that this (healthy) obsession comes at a price. A monetary one. And it isn’t always low!
To help you save money on your fashion items, below are some tips on using technology to get the best style or price.
Snap and Send
You take photos of your food, of the sky, or your face, and even of buildings, right before you post them to any number of social media platforms. However, for this tip, take photo of a dress you are looking at buying, but instead of sharing it with the world, send it to a small group of like-minded fashion oriented friends and find out if they have seen the item for a cheaper price somewhere else or if they know of an upcoming sale which you can take advantage of!
By simply waiting a few minutes and send in a photo, you can save a good amount of money each time you are looking to buy a designer fashion item.
Coupons and Vouchers
If you aren’t using your phone on the train to browse the Groupon Coupons page for Nordstrom Rack and are instead going into boutique stores then you are spending too much money on your fashion!
The next time that you are planning a night out, instead of heading into a store, check online stores like Groupon to find the same item you are looking at in the store at a deeply discounted price.
List Me Up!
Do you remember in the early 2000’s when everybody was asking for your email address to be added to their mailing list? If you do, then you also remember the birth of SPAM!
What companies didn’t realize at the time was that it was ridiculously easy for people to simply sign up and then block the sender. Then, of course, smart email filter technology came and our inboxes become a lot more manageable. As you know this put a stop to those pesky emails.
Luckily for business owners, they took note of this trend and began altering their tactics. Nowadays, when you agree to sign up to a mailing list you can be relatively confident that you won’t be bombarded with a bunch of emails about sales and products you never want to know about. Instead, stores now tailor their mailing lists and promotions, including offering flash sales.
For example, imagine that you are out at lunch and suddenly your phone buzzes to tell you that there is a sample sale happening in 15 minutes right around the corner from you! This is something which you would have missed out on had you not signed up to the mailing list and had your phone with you!
Just because you like to stay current doesn’t mean that have you to sacrifice your food and living budget. In fact, with just these three tips, you could be using your phone to save a lot more than you would think, leaving you with more available money to buy, say, more clothes!
